Thanks for clearing up a small mystery. My great aunt, Emma Davis was married to Edward Ordiway in Bannister, MI on July 21, 1902 by Mr. Benjamin D. Ackmoody, justice of the peace. The marriage record simply listed a B.D.Ackmoody, J.P. I now know his name. I'm sorry that I don't have any information about his descendants, but it seems that he and his family was only in Bannister (Elba Township) for a short time. it is ironic that my Davis ancestors also came from Ulster County, NY, but left there much earlier. I go to the Bannister area frequently to research my ancestors. If I find any Ackmoody records, I will pass them along.
